Thanks Creamy!

It's hard to believe that there are people seriously thinking the earth is flat. Where do they expect to be the edge of the world?

Nominations start next weekend!

Game makers: Make sure you add your game to the For Your Consideration thread. You should add it before nominations start!

Players: Play the eligible games! A good starting point is the For Your Consideration thread or the AGS Database.

I finished it!

The first puzzle I solved without understanding the pattern. I just thought 3-4 and 4-5 like it already did before. When 3-4 then didn't work, I tried 3-3 and that was correct. I only read the reason afterwards in the hints thread.

The second puzzle I couldn't figure out myself, only with the hints. I didn't understand that I had to replicate the sound. And I didn't know that "sew" is pronounced "so". The "ewe" was easy on the other hand (remember, I like sheep)

The wire puzzle was pretty easy, I got that with the second try (I think there were two possible solutions), but the wires were very small to click on.

The number puzzle was ok, but I had trouble finding the two of the operators.

The final quiz was hilarious!

I think the game would significantly benefit of changing the order of puzzles. The one that requires most patience and takes longest to do (because you have to click and wait and stuff) was first. Maybe if the wire puzzle or numbers were first, people wouldn't give up that easily.

I was a bit disappointed, I hoped that the LedEx truck would come at the end to pick the bomb up again  :P

Dash & Nicky in: Serum Scarum

My favourite. I can easily imagine how this game would look like and the traditional pnc gameplay with multiple characters. Sounds fun!

Neither the setting of a dwarf city nor the goal of leaving a city sound very exciting to me.

Serious Games
Spoiler: ShowHide
This one seemed like a great setup until the last sentence which meant a completely different kind of gameplay that sounds more technical than adventurous.

Bedroom Vigilante

This one sounds like Snarky's last pitch but less interesting.

The Cripple in the Castle

Interesting setting, but I'm not that much into games involving magic.

The Luck Goblins
Spoiler: ShowHide
This sounds really cute and like a fun game play idea. I'd play that.

the bookworm

Nice idea but not an adventure game.

Luxury item mayhem
Spoiler: ShowHide
I love escape the room games. I don't quite understand how this "single item" mechanic works. Can I only chose an item once and then have to stick with it for the rest of the game? Or can I pick up all but only one is useful?

@qptain Nemo:
There is still this thread:

I don't think a general mention of Club Galen is a problem, but this thread here got too many edited and/or aggressive posts.

A close one, but I vote for Blondbraid.

It's a pity you are leaving. Thank you for all you did for the community including hosting, the service, MAGSAN, the games you worked on, ...
I remember meeting you at AdventureX and that it was nice to finally meet you IRL.

I wish you all the best and hope you will drop in here from time to time.

AGS Database -

Please consider this game for

Best Short Game
Best Character (Rhonda Reindeer)
Best Gameplay
Best Programming (walking inventory, sliding, icicle puzzle)

@Snarky Thank you for the reminder!
Done and done

An award nomination or even win will definitely give the game some attention, usually a few people blog about it at least. The "For Your Consideration" thread is the first step to get there.

Have you made a game in 2018 and want it to compete in the AGS Awards 2018? This is the topic where to showcase it!
Post a database link, a brief description and some pictures (thumbnails preferred, here is an excellent FYC post from last year).

Do not be shy, by posting your game you are helping the players who will take some of their time to play/nominate/vote!

Usual remarks:
  • please include a link to your games page on the AGS games database
  • if you think a game deserves mention but the author isn't around, post a FYC for them! The more worthy games we get here, the better it is for everyone!
  • this thread is for FYC posts only, if you want to discuss the awards go here!

Post your games here before nominations start. The earlier you post, the more time people have to play your game!


Welcome to the AGS Awards, the event where the you, the player, choose the best games of the year!

Step # 0 - play them games!
You have some time to play games made in 2018. Do it!
Step # 1 - nomination time!
Select games you deem worthy in each category!
Step # 2 - vote, folks!
Pick from the nominees and we get a winner!
Step # 3 - party!
Big party to celebrate the winners!

How do the AGS Awards work?
(This is information mostly for new members, same procedure as every year)

Every year, the AGS community embarks on a quest to find the best games made in the last year. All games are eligible, that were added to the AGS Database in the year 2018. There is a For Your Consideration thread where authors can promote their games and players get a good overview what might be worth playing.

The awards are a two-step process: First there is a nomination phase where all community members can nominate the eligible games in several categories (it will be the same categories as last year). The top five games of each category make it to the voting. Again, all members of the community can vote on their favourite games.
The final result is then announced in a live ceremony that can be joined either with a special client or any regular irc client (details to follow).

Party like it's 1990 in this thread!

The [ br ] and [ endsummary ] tags don't seem to work in the games DB description (Example:
However, just putting line breaks directly into the edit window works (Example:

I guess you got the point intuitively: the icicles play jingle bells and you have to continue the song (the idea was that due to resonance, the icicle would oscillate and finally break when you use the right frequencies).
The length of the icicles correlates with the pitch, so once you figured out that you have to play Jingle Bells and which one plays the base tone, you should be able to solve the puzzle. I'm glad you did, I thought the puzzle might be too difficult.
The magpie has nothing to do with it, you cannot interact with her before the icicles are gone anyway. But if you interact with the icicles and then talk to the reindeer before solving the puzzle, she will give you a hint (and an option to skip the puzzle, in case you can't hear the audio)

I see it as well, I think because I have admin rights on the game DB (I sometimes help people fix their DB entries when they locked themselves out).
Maybe you have them as well? Some people were given those rights during one of those "fix screenshots and download links" activities.

Happy Birthday, Creamy!

Great that you added the game and that you gave it some polish!
I remember the great atmosphere but also some of the puzzles being overly difficult because of missing descriptions and two way interactions. I'm glad that this should be sorted now.

Changing the title of the database entry shouldn't be a problem. Just keep in mind to create a new database entry when you significantly change the game (i.e. more than a bugfix but a real extended version).

Thanks! I hope you will not be disappointed because the first part does not have rhymes or cotton wool snow (but there is cling film water, at least  ;))

I vote for lorenzo's Zorro

I thought about doing a pic of them fleeing the opened Ark from Indiana Jones, but didn't have time to do it.
